Weddings in the past have generally followed a predictable formula when it comes to music at the reception. Whether a band or DJ, the music was a mix of oldies music, reception standbys and a few gimmicky songs that stamped the event as a reception with songs like the Chicken Dance. Today, bride and grooms are making their musical selections more personal, more intimate, including music from a wide spectrum of styles.

Themed receptions are increasingly popular, reflecting the particular interests of the happy couple. For instance, Motown music, with its wonderful mix of soul, blues and ballads provides music for dancing and relaxing. Other couples prefer a bit of nostalgia and hire a swing band to give a 1940s flair to the event. Swing is always a favorite in that it provides plenty of dance tunes and appeal to parents and grandparents as well as young people.

If the bride and groom are close in age, they may choose a flash-back reception featuring tunes on which they grew up. A DJ that has a large collection of 80s or 70s music can recreate the flavor of an entire decade with the right mix of tunes. If you choose this route, you may be surprised to find many of the guests singing along with enthusiasm as they relive their younger (and possibly wilder) days.

Are you creating a themed wedding? If so, carry that theme right into the reception. For instance, for a medieval or renaissance wedding, which have become increasingly popular with the rise in Renaissance Festivals, contact a University music department to find chamber musicians who perform using instruments of the era. The unique beauty of this ancient music will create a memorable impression and guarantee your reception is not run-of-the-mill.

The same can be done if you have a Scottish or Irish wedding contact cultural groups for information on local talent. If you are having a casual, tropical-themed wedding, try a steel drum band. This bright, energetic music will have everyone tapping toes and jumping up to dance.

Todays interest in cultural roots has ushered in an increasing number of culturally themed weddings. Couples of Hispanic origin may want to honor their heritage by choosing Latino music, while African-Americans may enjoy traditional African music. Irish jigs, Scottish ballads, and a variety of other traditional styles of music are finding their way into weddings and wedding receptions, being enjoyed by new generations of guests as they toast the happy couple.

Therefore, if you are considering something unique for your wedding and reception, be confident knowing that just about anything in music goes. Additionally, you will discover a multitude of options for every genre and every budget.
